Last Friday, I went to Sudam, a Korean restaurant~ So, as I continue plowing through midterms, let’s please enjoy the food porn below.

For labor day weekend, I went into the mountains of Colorado to attend the esteemed Telluride Film Festival (43rd Year). I was part of a student symposium program, where I met undergrad and grad film lovers from all over the world – over the span of three and a half days, we watched 9-10 wonderful films, including Moonlight by Barry Jenkins (coming out this October) and La La Land (featuring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling). How did these few days go? Let’s find out!!

#FoodJourney: Korean Restaurants Disappoint

Spent a week on the new campus of Nanjing University in Xianlin (仙林), Nanjing. By the subway station, there are a row of very famous family-style restaurants, including two Korean restaurants that received some online raves. I love Korean food, so I had to try these two places out. Unfortunately, they kind of fell from my expectations. Read more to see food porn and also hear me rant mercilessly!

#FOOD: Northern California Din Tai Feng!

Ah, I’m so happy to post this, because this has been one of my best California food journeys in a while. Din Tai Feng, a really famous Michelin rated Taiwanese restaurant that specializes in XLB aka soup dumplings, opened two weeks ago at the Westfield Valley Fair Mall. I had reservations to go yesterday! 

The atmosphere, food, and service was wonderful (the waitress was extremely nice and warmhearted). The price is definitely a little up there, but if you just watch watch you order and try to share the dishes, you’ll do fine~ Well, let’s not waste anytime and dive right into pictures!
